iPad Air (2013) Review

 

Apple single-handedly created what we know to be the tablet category. Before the iPhone was even a darling of the world, Steve Jobs had a vision to create a tablet computer. Of course, as we all know now, Jobs decided to put what would eventually...

Apple iPad Air: Lighter and more powerful than ever before

 

Apple continues to dominate the tablet realm and despite worthy efforts from the Android camp, no one has been able to truly knock them off the pedestal. Rather than just getting a beefed up version of the iPad 4th Gen this year, we got a completely...

The Apple iPad Air starts at Rs 35,900 for the 16GB, Wi-Fi model and we feel this is a bit too much for what’s on offer. The drastic weight loss and new internals aside, we don’t see why someone would buy the Air instead of the 32GB iPad mini with...

Review Apple iPad Air Tablet

 

Love is in the air. The fifth generation of Apple's big seller is now available for purchase. Finally, the California-based company unveils a thinner device -- and at a height of a mere 7.5 mm (~0.3 inches), it has certainly earned the name "Air". The...

which are unfortunately poorly positioned; High surface temperatures under load; No current data transfer standards; No Flash support

Among others, the Apple iPad Air's competitors are the Microsoft Surface 2, Google Nexus 10, Sony Xperia Tablet Z and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Apple iPad Air 2

 

Sometimes Apple creates revolutionary products. And sometimes, Apple takes an iconic gadget and locks it into place, polishing its form year after year. The "Perfected Product" is a path that devices like the iPod and, most recently, the MacBook Air...

The new iPad Air gets an improved A8X processor, better rear and front-facing cameras, an even thinner and lighter design, an anti-reflective screen, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and more built-in storage at higher configurations than last year.

The Air 2 isn't a big change from last year's iPad in terms of overall function; battery life remains the same, although its battery life is already pretty good. Audio playback via speakers makes the thin metal body resonate more than before.

The iPad Air 2 is a nice refinement and finesse of last year's model, with a bevy of tweaks, enhancements, a much faster processor, and the welcome addition of Touch ID. Simply put: it's still the gold standard for tablets.

Can you be productive with a tablet? You betcha, provided you buy the right one.

Ten hours of battery life ; Twice as fast as fourth-generation iPad ; Light and thin

Still too big for long-term one-handed use ; No Touch ID

Apple iPad Air vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014: Center of gravity

 

With the smartphone market driven towards equilibrium, tablets will be the new battleground. The Apple iPad Air and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 emerge as the archrivals in the 10-inch category, marching towards their inevitable clash.

Apple iPad Air review: Thin, light and fast, but expensive

 

Apple's large-format tablet is thinner, lighter and faster than ever, and delivers good battery life. We'd like to see the biometric home button and a wi-fi upgrade as soon as possible, but it's still a high-quality, if premium-priced, device.

Thin and light ; Classy design ; Fast 64-bit A7/M7 platform ; Excellent LTE frequency band support ; Good battery life

No Touch ID ; No 802.11ac wi-fi or NFC ; Expensive, especially when accessorised for maximum business productivity

Manageability, security and support are a few of the reasons why BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 is such a powerful Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution. Check out this paper to learn more.

Apple iPad Air review: Sun and heir

 

It's been tempting lately to conclude that Apple doesn't have it anymore, and tablets in particular is where Cupertino does need to silence the prophets of doom and gloom after an iPad 4 that was more like a 3.1 and a mini that should've had a retina...

iPad Air review: The best tablet gets better

 

It's lighter, thinner, and twice as fast as the previous full-size iPad. What's not to like?

Air Worthy

 

The iPad Air features an impressively slender form factor and, thanks largely to its A7 processor and optimizations in iOS 7, it still manages to perform twice as fast and deliver just as much battery life as its predecessor.

Incredibly lightweight with a super-slim, redesigned form factor. A7 chip, in addition to helping provide an impressive 10-plus hours of battery life, offers superb overall performance whether you’re surfing the web or streaming media. 9.7-inch, 2048 x...

No TouchID, just a regular old home button. Despite upgrading to stereo speakers — audio separation remains poor. 5-megapixel rear-facing shooter could use an update
